Bands that make you want to do stuff

For instance: The Beatles make me want to pick flowers and the Stones make me want to crack some skulls. Of course I just sit there and listen, I am too lazy to get up and do either. Oh and Sprinsteen makes me want to play in traffic.

    To me, AC/DC always represented music to sniff glue by.

    And, no, I didn't.

    Yeah, drivin' music. Nothing better than rock and roll and a fun car. For some reason I've always found George Harrison's "Wah Wah" makes my right foot go in a downwards direction. It's on my playlist in the car, but not indoors.

    Oh -- umm -- well --
    the day I defended my doctoral thesis, I went into the lab, early in the morning and blasted the Pink Floyd song "Fearless" on the lab stereo.

    (Of course we had a lab stereo -- we used to do very complex kinetic studies blaring "the Ninth of Ludwig Van" on it -- typically at odd hours of the day, or night)

    So -- I guess Pink Floyd makes me want to talk about multivalent ligand binding to the galactose/N-acetylgalactosamine receptor found in and on the surface of mammalian nonparenchymal hepatic cells (hepatocytes).


    You say the hill's too steep to climb
    Climb it!
    You say you'd like to see me try
    Climbing!
    You pick the place and I'll choose the time
    And I'll climb
    The hill in my own way
    just wait a while, for the right day
    And as I rise above the treeline and the clouds
    I look down hear the sound of the things you said today
    Fearlessly the idiot faced the crowd, smiling
    Merciless, the magistrate turns 'round, frowning
    and who's the fool who wears the crown
    Go down in your own way
    And everyday is the right day
    And as you rise above the fear lines in his brow
    You look down
    Hear the sound of the faces in the crowd
